Decent Espresso news

Good progress there. We're unifying the XL and PRO foam designs, so we only have one set of foam. We've gone to much more expensive, sturdier material, which allows us to have thinner walls, which in turn has given us space to fit all the common accessories (tamper, milk jug, thermometer, scale, WDT tool) in the

Decent Espresso news

Yes, exactly. I think that the $99 retrofit will be available in June. We yesterday heard that the 2nd attempt at moulding our parts was complete and the samples are on their way to us. We initially had trouble getting them to fall off the mould, and then we had problems with screw hole sizes

Convert Bezzera Magica Vibratory Pump to Rotary Pump

I purchased my Bezzera Magica from iDrinkcoffee a few years ago and am quite happy with the espresso it produces but my good wife complains about the noise of it starting up in the morning and the rattle of the vibratory pump. In addition, plumbing the unit into the waterline would be a nice option. I am

My Aging, Ailing Acaia Lunar Scale (Sigh)

Just to clarify, I had already gone through all the troubleshooting steps mentioned above before creating this thread. It was Acaia who determined the load cell was messed up and they already had it in their possession and repaired it and sent me an invoice. My issue was whether it was worth the cash to even get it back. Which

Rocket Cellini Evoluzione - How to replace steam tap?

There was a groove in that brass rod for the circlip, and the rod broke off at the groove. The circled bit is what broke off. You need a new valve rod. Your part breakdown doesn't show it but it should be available from Rocket or a Rocket spare parts supplier. I recently got one from

Molar Z Grinder

Not just yet! I'll have more time to experiment next week so I'll give it a try. I haven't had any 98mm burrs (yet) so can't compare. Thanks!

Black and White Classic help

Tried letting the ground coffee sit for a little bit before extracting. Made it worse. Now 18gms runs thru in 13 seconds. I think one of 2 things has happened here, either this is just a bad batch, which I've had happen with other roasters, or this coffee just isn't going to work with my setup. I'll just

Olympia Club pressurestat malfunctioning

I bought some spare bellows from Migg last time I bought a spring from him. I identified US based source for the microswitch that is used in this marvelous device, but I can't find it right now. I think the manufacturer was Temco, but I am not certain. Migg might have them as well?

Good sealant for heat exchanger and heating element?

Anything that holds up well at high temperature. And easy to remove. It seems that permabond A131 is a good fit used by some manufacturers but they are hard to get. I've used loctite 542 but they adds to the difficulty to removing. Also any problem with using an impact wrench to remove? Will there be any
